Thursday Morning News Dump (6/30/16) [Mis. Hum.] | Main | Rasmussen: Trump 43, Clinton 39

Mid-Morning Open Thread [CBD]


Girl With Pearl Earring
Johannes Vermeer

Everyone has seen this one. It's beautiful and mysterious, and photos do not do it justice. I saw it in The Hague, at a small museum called Mauritshuis, and it is spectacular. And the museum, really just a big house, is amazing. Amsterdam is a dump, so if you are there just grab a train and head to The Hague for a few hours in one of the best museums in the world. Don't worry...The Hague has a coffeeshop or two.

And here she is all grown up! (Just kidding).
